Trinity’s Women’s Service provides a range of support services specifically shaped and designed with women’s needs in mind. The overall aim of the Women’s Service is to provide a safe haven where women can be listened to and supported to make positive changes in their lives. The confidential service is provided from a separate area upstairs in our building and offers a calm and safe environment away from the hustle and bustle of the Drop-In centre. The Women’s Service team has four key staff: a Senior Project Worker, a Project Worker/admin staff member, a professional Counsellor and a Domestic Violence Project Worker.

Trinity’s Women’s Service runs the Freedom Programme, a nationwide, accredited 12 week course aimed at helping women suffering from domestic abuse to develop the skills and confidence to recognise and break free from their physical and psychological abuse. Our programme is led by our Senior Project Worker who is a Trained Facilitator. The programme’s primary aim is to illustrate the effects of domestic abuse on children; assist women to recognise potential future abusers; help women gain self-esteem and the confidence to improve the quality of their lives and to introduce women to other community resources such as women’s refuges, Police Domestic Violence Units and local colleges among others.
For information on the freedom programme, please call us today.
“The Freedom Programme has changed my life. I arrived in a darkness and finished the last program with a completely different outlook. I feel positive about my future. I have made wonderful new friends. And most importantly I have learnt that I am not responsible.” Anonymous feedback, July 2017
